I like to tell stories — stories about inequity in education within urban schools, stories about refugee and immigrant students who have found themselves in a school designed specifically for them, stories about charter school scandals or stories about returning veterans adjusting to life in higher education.
I am a reporter, a writer, an editor, but first and foremost, I am a storyteller.
Currently, I cover education for the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
Previously, I’m worked as a digital producer, news manager, tutor, mentor, literacy coordinator and academic adviser.
My skills as a digital journalist include not only beat coverage, reporting and writing, but also digital production strategies, photography, SEO optimization, editing, headline writing, social media management and strategy, and publishing.
When I am not working (or on Twitter), I am doing yoga, biking, kayaking, checking out a new brunch spot or hanging out with my life partner – Sophie the Beagle.
